Picnic in Central Park August 31, 2012

One of the favorite activities for our PC TECH students is a picnic in the Park.

The Sheep Meadow is a great place to spread blankets, play soccer and frisbee, and have a little lunch.  Students from our many cultures chat together – in English of course – and just relax in the beautiful sunshine.

Today was the perfect day for this!
